hi all i,m over at my daughters trying to help out.what i have done so far is install firefox and as she is totaly new to pc i am looking for an easy email client for her to use.myself i am with aol so i have no experience on using any other email service,as i say my daughter is completely new to pc,s she just about nows how to switch it on so the internet is a different world to her.i have installed all the protection that has been recommended by members of this form so a nice easy to use email and how to set it up would be great thanks.

incoming server: as NTL details

smpt / outgoing server - again, as from NTL
